About A Boy - Season Pilot

NBC has picked up Rand Ravich’s drama Crisis and J.J. Abrams’ drama Believe.  Jason Katims’ comedy About A Boy has also been picked up.

UPDATE:  Comedy Sean Saves The World has also been picked up.

UPDATE (2) DJ Nash comedy Family Guide has also been picked up

    That’s now four new dramas for NBC next season, including the limited series Crossbones and Dracula. The Blacklist will certainly be picked up as well.

    So maybe only one more drama pickup left?

  • Peter

    Crisis looks interesting and has a good cast.

    Mmmm, I think NBC could do a Believe + Revolution night, a JJ Abrams night if you may. Maybe Tuesdays after The Voice!

  • Dennis

    FLOPS??? :D

  • Gio

    And now we have Sean Saves The World too.

    Sean Saves The World has also been picked up.

    Yay for Crisis featuring Rachael Taylor!

  • Tommy M.

    I’m looking forward to seeing how many comedies they end up picking up. That will be more telling than anything else when it comes to NBC.

  • Ultima

    The Sean Saves the World is a multi-cam. Good news for Whitney?

  • OddGuy

    Yay, Sean Saves the World is the comedy series that I’m most excited about. Hopefully NBC will also order Undateable.

    @Tommy M
    I’m looking forward to seeing how many comedies they end up picking up.

    I’m guessing at least six, including MJF.

  • Tommy M.

    @ Ultima, that probably depends on what else they pick up. I’m a big believer that they should cancel all their comedies except Parks and Rec.

    does this still mean glee is going to fridays next season?. :)

  • Cyrax86

    Maya Rudolph should join the Sean Hayes comedy to keep the Up All Night spirit alive!

  • Marcos


    Glee is not an NBC show

  • ethan

    @DW, what does any of this have to do with Glee?

  • tony


  • Oliver

    Early prediction: Sean Saves The World bombs.

  • Jazz

    I have a feeling NBC may slaughter their comedies. Other than P&R I wonder how many they will keep from their current line up. NBC is funny. Is this how they send out their information? In little bits and pieces like this.
